I watched the first season Murder House which I liked but thought it was freaky and weird. Wasn’t sure if I really liked it. It has taken me 8 years to finally give the second season “Assylum” a try. It was kind of the same freaky and weird but you have to keep watching because there is so much they keep throwing at you and adding characters it is so addicting that you have to know what’s going on. The writing is superb. Acting out of this world. It has a great cast. I mean Jessica Lang herself is a reason to watch! Definitely not for the sqweemish or those who are bothered by demonic possessions, alien abductions, mass murderers and gore. I don’t like devilish stuff but this was done so well it really didn’t bother me.
I’m looking forward to watching the other seasons!

A killer who skins his victims for masks, demonic possession, alien abduction, a possibly ex-Nazi doctor whose “experiments” roam in the forest outside, a homicidal Santa, the Angel of Death, and a swinging dance number. Watching American Horror Story “Asylum” is a bit like watching an acrobat juggling a machete, a chainsaw, a bowling ball and a flaming torch all at once. You’re part thrilled by the audacity, part terrified that something will drop, and part awed by the sheer talent to even attempt something like this.

It can’t work, it shouldn’t work, yet somehow it does, mostly because the writers, cast and crew emulate the tension filled restraint, dry humor, and stylistic stamp of Alfred Hitchcock; I half expected the rotund director to make one of his famous cameos. They use some of his favorite themes too, like “the innocent man mistakenly pursued by villains” (North By Northwest), “Caught up in mysterious conspiracy” (The Man Who Knew Too Much) and of course, the MacGuffin. It may be too much for some folks, but true horror fans (like those who can recognize the musical theme from “Carrie”) will savor it like dark, bitter chocolate.

How did I wait until now to watch this. It had just about every subject you can think of except 'Nam. The last episode is 42 mins of the best TV ever produce. No idea why Peters, Rabe, Chloe and many others didn't get library links on the description. No spoilers from me!

The best of the lot so far, including the recently completed "Coven", this series has it all and then some! Touching all of the elements and usual plot developments in the horror genre with spine-chilling, uneasifying results. Everyone/thing is here: Conniving priests, callous nunnery, nazi doctors, overly ambitious reporters, little green men from outer space and much, much more, including an ending you will not see coming, at least I didn't. Top notch performances by everyone and a dance production of Shirley Ellis' "The Name Game" which will blow your mind!

After watching the first season, the second was great. Now that I have seen the third season the second season, in my opinion, was the best. I am looking forward to the fourth season. One fact is true for the series the effects are great!!
